    Kite Dragon |

Kite Dragon This work will take place in Kosice on a housing estate near Kuzmányho exchanger Štítová, in which author Martin Kochan tried to combine two opposite standing prefabs by colored cotton thread. 150 windows from one prefab were combined with cotton thread over the other one. The artwork reminds kite dragon so name of this work is derived from it. Apart from the author himself residents of the flats also participated on making this artwork. They could choose the color of thread and they tied thread on the doorknob and then threw it out of the window. In addition to the actual work, the author and people acquainted with cultural activities exchanger Štítová on the estate. The work has been implemented under the project Medzicentrum IV. After the uninstallation of my artwork from the block of flats at the exchanger the volunteers by mistake disentangled the bundle of yarn, which I planned to exhibit again. As a satisfaction the same volunteers from the exchanger in Kosice knitted a hat for me which I wear during winters.
